With summer weather finally arriving on the ol' dusty plains here in Alberta, a lot of folks thoughts are probably turning to backyard barbecues and water parks and picnics and pin wheels and county fairs and whatever else folks associate with summer vacation.

Not us here at the Nation though. Our hearts and minds stay rooted at the rink - or, as it were, in spreadsheets, internet squabbles over player contracts and twitter flame wars.

This week, Lowetide snubbed the the inviting sun and instead talked contracts, drafts and free agency with a gaggle of guests including Jason Strudwick, Andrey Osadchenko and Jonathan Willis.

This is Nation Radio.

Part 1

Allan opens the show with his thoughts on the off-season so far.

Part 2

Next up, Nation Overlord Kent Wilson discusses the Flames loss of Olli Jokinen, their moves in free agency as well as Jason Garrison and Shea Weber.

Part 3

Our intrepid Russian Reporter Andrey Osadchenko updates the Nation on some of the Oilers European players as well as his recent interview with Nail Yakupov.

Part 4

Ex-Oiler and current Nation contributor Jason Strudwick talks about getting drafted, what it takes to make it to the show and what it's like to be a free agent.

Part 5

The OilersNation's own Jonathan Willis drops in for some draft talk as well a look at potential line combos.

Part 6

Finally, we end with Jason Gregor's interview with newest Oiler Justin Schultz.

We do not have the full show file quite yet. Once it arrives, we will update ASAP.

Finally, as always we would like to remind prospective sponsors that we still have a few advertising packages available here at Nation Radio. Feel free to contact Kent Wilson (kent.wilson@gmail.com) for more info.

Sometime I'd like to hear a segment with Wanye on building Oilers Nation. I've met the dude. He's pretty smart and worthy of a listen.

Just imagine how improved your paint skills will be on return from Nerd Camp.

You guys mentioned Gagner calling Yakupov more than once in the segment, but you should know it was TSN's Cabbie that set that up, it wasn't Gagner on his own. If you watch the clip, the phonecall was pretty awkward

Is it wrong that I always dance like a fool to the theme of Nation Radio?
